Reasons For

6 Reasons For
Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified Edit
The LG 43LF5909 is Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified, but the Philips 43PUS6401 is not Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) certified. Read more

The Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) is a system that allows various computer technology products - from TVs to phones to games consoles - to all share data and media with each other over a home network, with a minimum of compatibility issues.

A DLNA-certified TV will be able to receive, transfer & stream media from a wide variety of tech in your home, making sharing of media between devices far easier and more streamlined.

Wi-Fi Direct Edit
The LG 43LF5909 supports Wi-Fi Direct, but the Philips 43PUS6401 does not. Read more

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

18.3mm thinner Edit
LG 43LF5909 is 58.7mm thick, but the Philips 43PUS6401 is a 77mm thick TV (18.3mm thicker). Read more
